There is nothing that warms my heart more than looking at my adorable girls and seeing those precious smiles they have. Well sometimes those smiles are a bit more mischievous than precious, but you get the idea, hehe. Every child deserves to have a smile like my girls. A smile that can light up a room and put a grin on your face even when you’re feeling down. But the sad truth is not every child is blessed with a beautiful smile. In fact every three minutes a child is born with a cleft — often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places these children are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can’t afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a normal life. The good news is there is a charity working hard to give these children the smiles they deserve.
Operation Smile is an international children’s medical charity that heals children’s smiles, forever changing their lives. They are a mobilized force of medical professionals and caring hearts who provide safe, effective reconstructive surgery for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate. Operation Smile is one of the most prominent children’s charities in the world with a presence in over 60 countries… check out this blessing they were able to give Lucas and his family.
Operation Smile wouldn’t be able to operate without donations from ordinary people like you and me as well as larger companies. In fact one company that donates to Operation Smile is Campus Book Rentals. With each textbook rented Campus Book Rentals will make a donation to Operation Smile and they have committed to making enough donations to cover 1,000 life saving surgeries! So if you will be attending college classes why not consider renting your books instead of buying them? Not only will you help to give a child a beautiful smile, but you also will receive these awesome perks (plus more): save 40-90% off of bookstore prices, free shipping both ways, can highlight in the textbooks, and flexible renting periods.
